I absolutely LOVE this place. I have two young daughters and we go there at least 12 times a year. We call it "our backyard." We can easily kill a half a day hiking the trails, visiting the bees, watching the birds, checking out the dragonfly pond, playing alongside a creek, walking through a marsh, walking through a pine forrest, owl spotting, wondering through the nature center, etc. It has been an unbelievably fantastic catalyst to get my kids outside, active, and curious.

Really nice system of trails hidden here. Most are shown on this map, but some connecting routes aren't shown.
